A partial denture can be used to replace one or more missing teeth and will fit snugly alongside your remaining teeth. Partial dentures are easy to wear and patients soon adapt, bringing improved comfort when speaking and eating.
Partial dentures at Ascent Dental Care Loughborough are made with care and precision to provide optimal fit and function
Partial dentures can be made from both acrylic or metal with plastic teeth (acrylic) and gum areas. The framework can include metal or plastic clasps to hold the denture snugly in place.
If you have missing teeth, partial dentures can be a quick, effective and affordable way of having a complete, functional set of teeth.
Partial dentures fill in any missing gaps, so you are able to smile with confidence and restore eating and chewing. They can also help to stop teeth either side of the gaps moving and drifting which can cause problems with decay and function.
Benefits of partial dentures at Ascent Dental Care Loughborough
- Partial dentures will close gaps in your dentition and prevent natural teeth from moving & drifting
- Partial dentures can be made out of metal or plastic flexible materials, to ensure they fit in the mouth well and result in the maximum amount of comfort for the wearer.
- Partial dentures are smaller and more discreet and so the final fit is more stable and snug.
- We can add tooth coloured clasps to partial dentures to increase stability and function
- A whole dentition can be replaced using natural teeth & partial dentures which means that both appearance and function are restored for good
- Gaps in front teeth can be closed using partial dentures
- The average life-span of a partial denture can be 10+years.
- They are a low- cost alternative to dental implants
How are partial dentures made?
Your denture journey will begin with an in-depth consultation to find out more about you. Often, we ask that you bring in photos of yourself with natural teeth or with a smile that you particularly like. This will help us to understand what kind of desired result you are looking for. We will also carry out an in-depth assessment of your facial form and features that will enable us to create the right size and shape of denture to suit your facial symmetry.
We offer 0% finance at Ascent Dental Care Loughborough to ensure that partial dentures are accessible and affordable for everyone
The whole procedure can take from 2-4 weeks depending on each individual case. We will schedule a range of 20-30 minute appointments during which we will:
- Assess your facial form and features
- Look at old photographs of your smile/teeth (if you have them available)
- We may take photos of your existing dentures in the mouth
- We will carry out a thorough examination of your mouth and soft tissue to ensure you are healthy (including a free Oral Cancer check)
- We will assess the health of the surrounding teeth to ensure they are strong enough to support the denture
- Discuss and choose the type of support clasps we use
- We will take a range of impressions and molds of your mouth and teeth
- Possibly schedule a meeting with your denture technician if deemed appropriate
